I have submitted all players who have posted in this thread to the brackets. Note that the brackets haven't been published yet because the tournament is due to start on the 20th. The brackets will be posted here before that date, no later than the 19th.

Note, I'm thinking of adding a computer, don't worry the rating will be around 1200, so not too crazy. You will player the computer on man vs machine settings on chess.com, you'll need a screenshot to prove you've won agaisnt it though. To be fair, if I get drawn agaisnt it I will provide a screenshot if I need to play it. Actually I might add a few computers, to get the numbers up. Thoughts?

Meh... I don't think adding them 'to get the numbers up' is a good idea. If we wanted to play against computers we could do that any day on our own time.

OK, so far there are 18 players registered (1 ai player makes 19, I will remove the ai, if I receieve 1 more negative post about it). This seems quite good. The final day players can register will be the 19th, pf, maybe you can invite your dad to play??? I'd like to see some his skills.

For some reason I can't even play against the computer now (some bullshit "please enable java" errors). chess.com is fucked up for me. Any other viable sites?

Really looking forward to this. I've been playing a lot in the past few days and I remember why I enjoyed the game so much. I'm locked in a good game with my father at the moment. We swapped queens rather early in the game and now we are locked in for a really long battle.

Tomorrow, I will post the final rules. THE FINAL DAY PLAYERS ARE ACCEPTED IS THE 19TH. IF YOU HAVE ANY FRIENDS WHO YOU'D THINK WOULD LIKE TO PLAY THEN THEY MUST REGISTER BY THEN. The brackets won't be posted until the 19th, hopefully around midnight GMT time. The rules will be posted tomorrow so that any questions can be asked before the tournament actually starts.

Depending on how succesful and how well this runs I may have a series 2 chess tournament, remember to have fun guys.

Currently 19 players in the draw.

OK, here are the rules, the first free are basically the same as I stated before:

1. Don't take ages to move just to annoy your opponent, especially if you're doing it because you're a sore loser.
2. Leave the game for any reason, including disconnect, auto-forfeit, the exception is of course if you or your opponent was going to win beyond a shadow of a doubt, if this happens the match needs to be replayed. However, if a player disconects twice regardless of the circumstances, then that player will lose.
3. You must show up to the time they arranged with your opponent, failure to do so will result in you forfeiting the match. If something comes up within that time period then you'll need to contact your opponent 24 hours before so you can arrange an alternate time. If you someone is actively trying to avoid playing they will lose.
4. When the draw is released, (tomorrow sometime hopefully) contact your opponent via pm and arrange the time.
5. All rounds have a week to be completed. The first round will commence on the 20th December, so you have until the 28th December to complete round 1 with your opponent. I realise this is 8 days but I'd prefer it if all rounds could be finished on a Friday.
6. Games are to occur on chess.com if you and your opponent can't agree on a place to play. You could play in their house if you wanted to but keep in mind you'll need to provide proof that you won in the case your opponent disputes your win.
7. The standard time is 30 minutes per player (if no agreement on the time per match can be found)( this means that each player has 30 minutes to move each, so game shouldn't exceed an hours duration. However, if you and your opponent say want to play a blitz 1 minute match, or a 3 hour per player count down timer that is also fine.

That's it, have fun guys, any questions just ask.

Mogila, the only issue I see arising is that I will be away from december 28th until january 3rd. Should I make it to the second round, perhaps we can do a slightly extended time frame for the second set of games.

The brackets have been posted.


I understand with Christmas and the new year, people may have some difficulty with the tournament, I will allow for a slight extension for the second round. Round 1 Offically starts tomorrow, the majority of players have byes until the 2nd round. However, the following players will be competing in round 1:

http://binarybeast.com/xSC21212154

me vs oogboog

and

Scorntyrant vs BlasphemousGoatSodomy

Good luck everyone.

To oggboog, I will be taking an international flight today and therefore will be unable to play until Friday 21st at the earliest, I will pm you with more details.

I'm doubting whether or not I can play since family is coming to town on the 20th. I'll stay posted but no guarantees at this point.

Wait, so do people grouped with FreeWin just wait till the next round? I don't have a problem or anything, but why was that done?

I think that the tournament was supposed to be set up for 32 people, but not enough people wanted to partake in it.

Speaking of which, perhaps we could hold another tournament over, say, the summer? People may have more time to play then.

Yes, but why can't people that are grouped with FreeWin just play against each other? I don't get the pairing, unless it was done to specifically fit the 32 player results table model, which is kinda dumb. Not complaining, I don't mind waiting.

The reason why it has free win for some is because there was more than 16 players and I didn't really want to exclude some people. So yeah, it was basically designed for 32 players.

you should post the Png file so we can check out the game or link to the game-file. It would be nice to see other people's games.

Scorntyrant and BlasphemousGoatSodomy still have to play their game, if they haven't already. The bracket's been updated, too.

Apparently my partner never agreed to the tournament and you added him to bracket anyway? You may want to message him and see what's going on with that.
